On cask at the White Lady.
Appearance - deep amber and a touch cloudy. Proportionate head.
Nose - lashings of toffee.
Taste - toffee, even fudge. A light red fruits note melded in.
Palate - close to medium bodied with a creamy yet tart texture through the middle section. The finish is long and dry with a tart edge again.
Overall - a challenging beer but well worth the grapple.
